2021 Business Builder Breakfast: Working On Your Workforce
Advancing Career Connections Kick Off Breakfast
Despite the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, segments of our Island’s labour market have seen growth over the past year. Additionally, some industries are experiencing increased labour shortages.
Prior to the pandemic, employers experienced increased labour shortages across many sectors and this trend has continued throughout the pandemic and is expected to continue into the future. What trends are we seeing in demographics and hiring practices? What skills gaps exist and what opportunities are available to employers to support upskilling and reskilling among their workforce? How can Island businesses and organizations prepare their workforce development strategy for the future?
Our panelists will touch on these questions and more in this insightful workforce information session.
Immediately following this session, the PEI Connectors will host their inaugural speed networking event, Advancing Career Connections (ACC) from 11 a.m. - 2 p.m. at the Delta Hotels by Marriott Prince Edward. Click here for more information.
